Dimensional Paper Picture Frames

Dimensional Paper Picture Frames Cut File

These fun frames have a dual purpose. They are not only frames, but boxes too. I was very excited about this project because, like many other projects in the Craft Room, their versatility is almost endless.  You can leave them as plain as you like, or really dress them up.  Check out the frames section under the decorative header in the Craft Room. You can use some of those files to decorate your frames. I think the Circus Tent file or the Choo Choo file would be really cute.   Adding something as simple as a name and a basketball, baseball, or the like would make great team gifts, and remember you still have the box part to add treats to! How about adding a graduation cap to one for a grad gift!  Another idea is to shrink them and use them for table markers/favors.  They can be the same theme or completely different.

You can make one or all three and cluster them. That’s what I love about owning a Pazzles Vue, anything goes!  Can you tell I’m excited about this project?  I’ve included step by step instructions and the cutting files for all three frames. I’ve also included the files for the decorations I used for my frames. I hope you enjoy making and customizing them. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
